Hope all of you are doing fine. Today, I am here to share a sweet gesture from my cousin sister who traveled all the way from East Coast to West Coast just to meet us and enjoy a good Thanksgiving weekend with all of us. We are totally enjoying her stay while Aadya is enjoying her little brother’s company nowadays. She is a big fan of IMBB and always admires our posts, hence upon asking to share her beauty secrets, she readily agreed to share her vanity treasure with all of us. And that’s so sweet of her that she agreed to pose for my reviews. I will really miss her stay once she moves back. Anyway, let’s me tell you something about my sister. She is head-over-heels in love with wine and deeper shades, being blessed with beautiful and flawless medium-tan skin tone and I swear she totally rocks all those wine shades. So, let’s talk about her favorite wine shade from Lakme Enrich Lip Color Classics “Red Wine.”
Rs. 225-300 for 4.4 ml.
Deep conditioning lip color enriched with Vitamin E for softer and smoother lips. Contains strawberry, grape seed, and peach extracts to keep lips nourished and soft. Made in India. Enriched with sunscreens, vitamins and the goodness of olives, your lips will have a story to share.
This bold and beautiful wine shade comes in a retractable bullet packaging with safety cap. It does have faint smell which is not over powering.
My Experience with Lakme Enrich Lip Color – Red Wine:
Actually, this lipstick belongs to my sister and hence I will share her experience with you all. According to her, this particular shade is the most gorgeous and deep wine shade which absolutely suits her flawless medium-tan skin tone with neutral undertones. She also believes that this shade will definitely suit 30+ beauties blessed with medium/olive/tan skin tone. And I can vouch for it since I can see her flaunting drop dead gorgeous wine lips (so unlike me).
As I already told you all, she is a fan of bold and deep shades, hence this wine shade is a must-have in her vanity kit irrespective of the season around. It is a perfect winter shade with no shimmer and creamy-glossy finish on lips though I have seen her wearing it in hot summers with equal grace. This lipstick gives the exact same pigmentation as seen in the bullet in just a single swipe.
Yes gals, this lip color gives intense color payoff even in a single gentle stroke while she swipes it twice for smoother and deeper finish on lips which stays put for good 4-6 hours with light snacks and water/tea breaks. The lip color in itself is not much hydrating and she needs a lip balm beneath this shade for deadly East Coast winters. However, it is neither over drying or irritating on lips nor does it accentuate any other issues.
The lip color does fade away after one heavy meal leaving behind a gorgeous wine hue which stays put for good hours. I must tell you, she tried so many brands all over the world, but this Lakme wine lipstick holds a special place in her heart and vanity, just like me 😛 She highly recommends this shade to 30+ beauties for fall season, especially for gals who are looking for budget-friendly options. Personally, she would always get it again and again without any second thought.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Lakme Enrich Lip Color – Red Wine:
- A hydrating and beautiful deep wine shade with no shimmer infused with the goodness of vitamin E and other beneficial ingredient.
- Does not cause any irritation, does not dry out lips.
- Gives intense pigmentation in one single swipe.
- Stays put for good 4-6 hours even with light snacks and water/tea breaks.
- Does fade a bit after one heavy meal but still manages to leave a graceful wine glossy sheen for a few hours.
- Does not bleed or feather around lips.
- Quite economic and travel-friendly option.
Cons of Lakme Enrich Lip Color – Red Wine:
- It might be tricky for fair/light skin tone gals.
- Not comparable to most moisture enriched lip products available nowadays.
Well, we all know we have tons of products which are way better than Lakme, but as they say every gal has a story to share. That’s how Lakme touched our lives way back when we were aliens in this foreign land and still are 😛 No matter how many products we try, but first love is last love they say and so my sister knows she will always get this Lakme Red Wine and she already ordered me to bring this lipstick from my upcoming India trip.
For her, this particular lipstick is 4/5!
